Odessa Taps Johnson to Grow Auto Finance Division

Odessa, a provider of technology solutions for the asset finance industry, hired Robert Johnson to lead automotive finance globally. Johnson is based in the Dallas area.

Johnson, who previously was a managing director at EY, has more than 30 years of experience supporting auto and equipment finance companies in developing and implementing core technologies.

“The technical foundation of auto finance is evolving from monolithic platforms and modules to components,” Eric Bernstein, CEO of Odessa, said. “The components-based technology Bob will manage for Odessa enables auto finance companies to process many different financial instruments and business units with different needs on one platform, without having to conform to the old ways of doing business. We’re glad to have him because he knows the needs of the auto finance industry.”

Prior to EY, Johnson held various leadership positions with CEDAR CX Technologies, defi SOLUTIONS and Alfa Financial Software in London.

“I joined Odessa because of the capabilities of its agile asset-based platform and the company’s differentiated approach to customer relationships,” Johnson said. “The cloud-based, API-first platform provides total flexibility for customers to self-configure, integrate and extend the platform to suit their needs. This technology and team are what the auto finance industry has been waiting for.”
